LASER biathlon in VT



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello,
On New Year's Day, the local ski club is hosting a series of Bill Koch Ski league (BKL) races. They are also setting up a biathlon range using laser instead of bullets. The reasoning is safety to give it a try and also to get around schools and firearms laws. Before going off on how things have changed and we used to bring guns to school to go hunting, lasers aren't the same as bullets, etc.... realize somewhere near 150 kids and their parents will be introduced to the shooting sports. Not sure of the details but I believe the rifles are Anschutz. I was asked to assist on the range and be one of the resident biathletes to answer questions. I'll post a report when the event has finished.

Pesonally, I think the laser thing is a great tool to get around the gun fear issue. You could get away with doing a shooting demo in a shopping mall with lasers. I know there are some drawbacks to laser depending on shooting position, from a training standpoint, but it has it's place.
Kudos to you for working to promote shooting sports!
Have a fantastic new year.

Laser Shooting

Anything that will help expose youth to shooting sports is a good thing.
Laser shooting could be the hook it takes to entice a non-shooter to try the real thing.

Once a laser shooter becomes motivated.
It should be easy to upgrade from pretend to reality.

Kevin ... it is wonderful of you to be involved in mentoring aspiring biathlon participants.
